Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his newly-named running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), will appear in their first joint interview on Sunday’s 60 Minutes. Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer will conduct the interview, CBS News tweeted Sunday morning.
Schieffer is taping the interview with the G.O.P. running mates in High Point, N.C. today, and the conversation will subsequently air on the news magazine’s 7 p.m. ET broadcast tonight.
CBS had been pursuing the interview “for months,” The New York Times reported Sunday morning. CBS News chairman Jeff Fager told the times that the interview will last approximately 15 minutes, similar to other segments on the show.
